High4’s Popularity Ranking

In Korean entertainment there something called ‘brand popularity ranking’. It’s a ranking that is published by Korean media outlets that reflects who is the most popular group or people in the past month. The ranking will be updated every month to show who is creating the most media buzz.

High4 members got popularity when they debuted in 2014 because they featured with the most popular Korean Female Artist, IU. Because of this, the group created so much buzz when they debuted.

Their debut song ranked at number 1 on Melon and other Korean music sites. The song also won on Inkigayo on May 11 2014. Not Spring, Love, or Cherry Blossom become the most popular ‘Spring carol’ in Korea. When Spring comes, the song will chart again on Korean music sites even though it was released a long time ago.

Let’s hope they will make a comeback soon.
